Powertec Power Rack System Review – Final Thoughts

It has been exactly a month since I last spoke about the Powertec Power Rack System, so it’s time for a quick final take on it. I have been training with it exclusively and love it to death. The whole thing is very sold, and I bumped into it a few times with the plates and bars… not a scratch has surfaced. I haven’t been able to use the lat attachments yet because of the low ceiling height, but I should have a summary of it in two or three months (when I move my setup to the garage). I have been squatting, benching (flat and incline), dead-lifting and power-cleaning for a month and I have no complaints whatsoever. The bench is sturdy and highly adjustable, and it hasn’t failed on me yet. I have done a few dips with the power rack and the thing doesn’t budge with my weight (all 180 lbs of me :)). Yep, this thing is strong and durable, and I’m confident it’s going to last me a long, long time. Since I got it, I have always looked forward to going home and lifting some weights. Damn fine rack.

  1. Hey, I was looking at purchasing a Powertec Power Rack myself and contacted Fitness Nutrition just a few days ago about it. They have some in stock. I was wondering what the website was you were referring to in the first part of this article where you managed to have them lower the price by 220$? I was given a price for the Power Rack with the Lat attachment of 1241,64$ including taxes. I was thinking of getting the bench as well, but I don’t need the Lat attachment for now. Any advice on how I should go about this? I will definitely ask them for a package deal since I will probably buy some Olympic weigths and bar. Thanks! And how’s the rack working for you so far?

  2. Hello! The website I used to price-match the equipment was originally Powertec Canada but the website has been modified since then (due to legal reasons I hear). The new site is on Treadmill Factory which Fitness Nutrition knows them very well (one of the workers knows the owner of TF supposedly). Currently, I believe this is our only best competitor-comparison site out there. In any case, it should help you lower down the price considerably. If you also purchase the bench and lat attachment, you can definitely get a better discount. Just a note, you won’t get a discount on the weights because they’re pretty low to begin with… I tried, believe me. 🙂

    The rack is amazing; it’s still very stable and hasn’t failed me since. I’ve been working out on it non-stop since I got it in February. I actually added the lat attachment 2 months ago (managed to make the whole thing fit in the low-level ceiling… don’t ask how) and it’s pretty stable. There’s a bit of resistance when pulling just so you know (when there are no weights added) but it’s still a solid attachment.
